I am having a problem with my PC shutting down when I select restart. To complicate things more it is only in the administrator profile. In the "limited user" profile everything works as expected.

Re: PC shuts down when I select restart
Here are a couple things you can try.
Edit the MSCONFIG Startup tab and Services Tab. Disable the entire startup tab, and HIDE ALL MICROSOFT SERVICES on the Services tab, then uncheck the rest. Reboot, then try a restart. If the problem goes away, then start adding items back one at a time till you identify the item causing the issue.
Updating the BIOS and Video driver are usually helpful.
You can also create a new profile with Admin rights and see if it works normally. Often, a profile will develop issues that are usually easier resolved by just creating a new profile, then moving data files to the new profile. (Never delete the old profile till you are absolutely sure there is nothing left in the profile you need.)

Right-click on "My Computer" and select "Properties"
Select "Hardware" and click on "Device Manager"
Find your wireless card under "Network adapters" and double-click it.
Verify that there aren't any auto power management settings enabled that might be shutting your card down prematurely.
Another thing to try is to simply shut down all your hardware - ie.
your PC, your modem, your router, your laptop, etc. - anything on the
network. Then power them back on in the following order: modem
-> router -> PC (wired) -> laptop (wireless) and see if that
fixes the issue.
If that doesn't work, you can try completely reinstalling the keys as follows:
Try pressing the <Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Del> keys together. If that doesn't work then the Asus Eee PC 900 user manual has this information: Click 'Instant Shutdown' and select an action from the dialog box. You can activate the task manager, put the system in standby, restart or shut down the system.
Ok Gonna try and teach you some basic programming :-). What the following will do, is create you a Desktop Shutdown Icon, which when you double click on it, will hopefully shut down your PC rather then restart it. So here's how to do it :-).
1. Right click on your desktop and select new > shortcut. 2. In dialog box type “shutdown –s” 3. Click next to continue and then type a name for shortcut (IE Shut Down PC) and click finish.
Now you should see the shortcut on your desktop and will hopefully solve your problem.
The most common shut down problem is that the system will reboot rather than shutting down. In most cases, the reboot is triggered because Windows XP is designed to reboot after a critical failure. To stop windows from rebooting in case of a failure, you need to take the following steps:
Right click on My Computer, Select Properties, Click on advance tab, Click on Settings under Startup and Recovery, Uncheck the option Automatically Restart under System failure, Click Ok twice and try to shutdown the pc. If it shows any error code then let me know
